Blackburnian Warbler
This species is a very rare migrant in California mostly in the Fall with only occasional winter records. They normally winter in the mountains of northern South America. This immature female was discovered in this small hilltop park on 9 January. Note the gray rather than black eyeline combined with the rather pale throat and supercilium. These features are typical of young females. Immature males are similar but usually have a black eyeline and darker ventral streaking. The pale back stripes with dark accents visible here are diagnostic for this species. Formerly placed in the genus "Dendroica."
